Hi, everyone! I am your fearless leader!

Sorry to be so slow in responding. We have had a rough summer and I've barely been on here. But fall riding season is coming, and where I live it's some of the best riding weather of all! So welcome!

Hello! I'm new to the team.

I have a comfy Giant hybrid and I ride about 12 km (7.5 miles) a day to and from work, weather permitting. I love my bike for city commuting because I don't ride fast out of fear of a car door or some other thing I'll have to stop quickly for. But maybe I'd like a racer bike for weekend trips on a long bike path. I don't do that but I'd like to!

I'm doing a 35km (22 miles) ride in a few weeks with my Dad and group. It's a very hilly course but it's beautiful out in the countryside!

If you don't like the road you're walking, start paving another one!

Hi there! I was excited to find this group on sparkpeople. I do a variety of activities, but road biking is the most serious (and expensive) one. I'm competing in a duathlon next Saturday, and I'm training to bike over Powder River Pass, here in northern Wyoming. I love riding in our beautiful country.

Welcome! This team really welcomed me with a warm hello. I hope you feel the same. P.S. I think the cold might..possibly..perhaps..be receding.
I cannot wait for spring and warmer weather!

The cold is starting to get seriously depressing! It can't last forever, right?

Welcome!
I think we're definitely a bit more lighthearted here (not that being hardcore is bad), though we have some folks who have some goals and who've done some rides that I just find amazing. And definitely inspiring - which is part of the deal, for me. I never even flirted with the idea of riding a century or doing a camp & ride tour until I met some of the fun folks here who've done it, and who make it seem more possible for me.
Though I'm still mostly a fair-weather commuter girl.
Who is, as Miss G says, hibernating (3rd Polar Vortex? REALLY??!???)
Spring is coming. I think.

We succeed when we create conditions for success - and when we can't do that, we create conditions for succeeding within constraints.

I'm glad you found this team, too! We're a little more light-hearted than the bigger cycling team (I think), but there are a lot of really avid cyclists here, too. I hope you spend some time wandering through to posts and get to know us. Feel free to lurk for a bit, too.

Love God. Love your neighbor. Change the world. It really is that simple.

Pain is inevitable. Suffering is optional.

Welcome! We are a casual and friendly group of women who love to ride. We're hibernating a bit right now, waiting for this weather to finally break, but we will be out on our bikes soon!
